Cherrywood Business Directory

If you’ve decided to search for an inner city home, there’s a good reason why….and I believe it’s because you’re so close to work, shopping, schools, entertainment and all the other things that enhance our quality of life! Who wants to spend hours of our week on the freeway or other commute when you can be minutes from all the things that central Austin living can offer? While living in the 78722 zip code with its charming neighborhoods is certainly enough of an excuse seek your home here, you’re also only minutes away from the University of Texas, downtown, hike and bike trails, and a number of exciting entertainment districts.

I’ve started a list of businesses in our area that IN or WITHIN ONE MILE of our neighborhood borders. If you’d like to be added to this list, or you have a favorite haunt that I missed, please contact me and tell me about it.
